    Thumbs Up "Theyre Fed Up With Americas Racism. So Theyre Moving to Africa."



    When Lakeshia Ford decided she was going to pack up her life and her budding career and move from New Jersey to Ghana, her family could not understand why she wanted to make the trek to a country thousands of miles from home. Even more surprising, to some, was Fords reason: the shooting death of Michael Brown by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. The incident, which set off protests across the United States, was a tipping point for the 30-year-old Ford and her relationship with the country of her birth.

    Mike Brown got shot and it just put this huge distaste in my mouth for, like, the country and the flag and what it means to be American and representing the American flag, Ford says. I felt very detached from that identity. I felt very excluded. While that feeling was certainly shared by many across the country, Ford is part of a small but growing group of black Americans who have become so fed up with racism in the United States that they have decided to move to Africa.

    I remember a moment. I remember sitting on my bed and visualizing like a transition, Ford recalls. You know that image of Mike Brown with the blood, and he was just [lying] there [in the street]? The animation in my mind was like he rose with that blood and turned into water, and I floated back. Well, I didnt float back, but basically I use that blood in the water to get back to Africa.

    Four years later, Ford sits in a trendy hotel bar in Accra, the capital of Ghana, a small coastal nation in West Africa. As dusk settles, she sips water after a long day of work while other patrons laugh and catch up with friends. A communications professional with a background in finance and international relations, Ford once dreamed of serving as a foreign diplomat, but she soured on the idea of representing the United States abroad. Instead, she came here and set up her own business, Ford Communications, a strategic communications and public relations boutique. Ford found a niche servicing Ghanas booming tech industry.

    This woman is clearly an inspiration to her people, I think all blacks living in America and Europe should follow her example. In fact she should start a "go fund me" account to help pay the expenses of moving them back.

    Man Creates GoFundMe so Racists Can Send Him Back to Africa



    Source: thegrapevine

    I remember the first time someone told me to go back to Africa. I was about 11 years old and quite confused, because for all I knew, I was from New Jersey.

    It seems as though the "Go back to Africa" sentiment is a popular saying among racist people. And now one man wants people to donate to his GoFundMe page so he can do just that: go back to Africa.

    Larry Mitchell, of Indiana, created his GoFundMe page and is accepting money from racists so they can send him back to Africa.

    "Send me 'back' to Africa fund … If you want me to go back to Africa I will gladly go … you can help make your dream and mine come true … accepting all donations … KKK, Skin Heads and anyone else with like mind thinking are welcome to donate … Thank you.. God bless you and America … #putyourmoneywhereyourhateis," Mitchell states on the page.

    So far he's raised a little over $200, and people have left comments along with their donations. Someone named "fedup whiteguy" left $45 and told him, "You better not come back." But there are other people who have applauded Mitchell.

    "Where are all you people at? I constantly read comments online from thousands of people saying they will gladly pay the way back to Africa. $25 in 5 days is all? Put your money where your mouths are. No wonder he wants to go you cannot even trust white people to commit to their hate," a white guy named Roy Sisson wrote.

    See, people want to hate, but they don't want to send us back to Africa. So not only are racists stupid, but they're also cheap.

    Good riddance to all of them.

    I thought they, and half of Hollywood were going to move back on their own or leave the country after Donald Trump was elected. Frickin' hypocrites.

    They might be in for a shock when they find that in Africa they will still be seen as outsiders and encounter "racism" from people who are a similar colour to them but see them as being from a completely different culture.
    I grew up on a belief of honour, courage and the old world values. The world isn't about that anymore, preferring to die a slow death of fast food and cheap thrills.

    Hardly exaggerating when I say that they all think this way, that the country has some giant conspiracy to keep them down. In some respect I can't blame them given what their role started out as here--and it'd be hypocritical for me to fault them for advocating for their in-group--but the delusional extent to which they take it gets tiresome.
